    I just bought a 19ft Dusky open fisherman. I have a 1st Gen dbl cab 3.4 L V6. I have a class 3 hitch on it. Can anyone tell me what I can do to beef up my truck for towing. I read the post about towing I found on our site already. My main concern is the strain on the tranny and pulling out of the slip. Thanks
